Depends on the ant.
We used to have these big juicy ones for a couple of years when I was young. I ended up getting used to them, and didn't mind catching them with my hand, ew. you can get used to anything. (I 'accidentally' electrocuted one with a battery at one point. didn't think it would die tbh, was just playing around : / )
I think I've seen a couple of their queens too (brrrr)
Some are really scary, especially if they have stripes. I hate insects with stripes.
Also I think there are different versions of the big ones. Some are quite cute and orderly, they walk only in straight lines. I was used to those. Some colonies have more spidery looking ants though. These walk in random directions and it looks pretty creepy.
I don't like killing the little ones. They look pretty harmless. Also, their existence looks so futile. Looking at one walking across a room, I get all kinds of existential thoughts.
